BOTOX injections offer you a way to take care of your unwanted facial lines and wrinkles without needing major invasive surgery. If you are tired of looking at lines and wrinkles in the mirror or if your topical products are not giving you the results that you wanted, BOTOX can solve your issues with only a brief appointment that gives you results that last up to four months. Whether you know nothing about Botox or have heard some things about the treatment, we are here to tell you just what you need to know to set your mind at ease and help you feel good about making this smart choice for your skin.
This treatment is made from the botulinum toxin, a potent neurotoxin that only has to be used in very small doses to give you amazing results. Lest you feel any concern about having a toxin injected into your face, you should know that BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment. In addition, we use extremely small doses. Our goal is to give you the smallest possible effective dose that will give you a natural, pleasing look.
BOTOX is most effective on the fine lines and wrinkles that first show up on your face as you begin to age. These lines begin in the areas that have crinkled constantly over the years and have started to form grooves. These are most often found across the forehead and around the outer corners of the eyes. They may also be found as frown lines between your eyebrows or around the edges of your nose or lips. As long as the line or wrinkle is not a static wrinkle that is fixed on your face even when it is at rest, then it can be treated with BOTOX.
BOTOX produces nearly immediate results within the first week after the treatment. The injection paralyzes the tiny muscles within the face so that they can no longer contract and wrinkle the skin lying over them. Because we use small, precise dosages, you do not have to worry about having a “frozen” face. Instead, you will be able to move your face well and continue to make all of your facial expressions. You will simply look more youthful, and this will give you higher self-esteem wherever you go.
